Race will go on



SPEED on Tweed organisers have vowed to continue with the popular festival, despite the death of a driver on Sunday afternoon. Yesterday floral tributes were being laid at the scene of the fatal accident. Director Roger Ealand said the death of Jon Chippindall had devastated race organisers, but they wanted to stage another event next year. "This has really knocked us, heart and soul," he said. "It has knocked the wind out of our sails but we are determined to get back on our feet. "This event is too good a thing to let go and I'm certain Jon himself would be devastated to know it was stopped because of him," said Mr Ealand. Mr Chippindall, 54, of Brisbane died when he rolled his 1929 supercharged Austin 7. Witnesses said the car rolled on its side crushing Mr Chippindall against a safety barrier. n Continued Page 3
